The ability to think about and critique the injustice requires information. Yet sometimes individual’s reasoning talents may lead a country down the path to collapse since they cause people to doubt the much-praised and very effective process by which the country operates. If the judicial system ever becomes corrupt or disorganised, it might be fatal to the entire nation. Thus, the notion of a "Contempt of Courts Act" is necessary to maintain order, efficiency, and productivity and to silence unwarranted critics. Thankfully, the concept of contempt of court is still widely used and effective in India's judicial system. It's true that things are better here at home because everybody knows that the judiciary will help the needy even if “the executive and legislative branches of government fail to do so”.
